BLACK LIVES MATTER
The Kaufer Lab stands with Black Lives Matter. We denounce the unjust killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and other African Americans at the hands of the police. Furthermore, we recognize that a history of racial disparity and discrimination is deeply rooted in our society, including in the institutions of academia and science, which have been problematic in their representation, recruitment, and inclusion of African Americans and other racial minorities. We, the Kaufer Lab, commit to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for our African American and minority community members. Rather than deny the discrimination and racial disparities present in the practice of science, we will acknowledge their presence and work on active solutions to address them.
OUR CODE OF CONDUCT
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Acknowledge that we hail from a diverse range of life experiences, educational backgrounds and scientific fields.
Be supportive of your fellow labmates. Be generous with your time if able and offer help when needed.
Be aware that words or mannerisms can cause offense, and what may be funny to you can make others feel invalidated.
